LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some very special ladies are being honored for winning multiple national titles.

At the national tournament in Florida, the Fern Creek Ladies' JROTC Drill Team finished first overall in the country. It also won titles in four of the five main events.

The men's team placed second overall in the country and won first place in the competitive platoon exhibition.

"You're still a high school student," said Alexis Stoneburner, captain of the ladies' drill team. "Between AP classes and homework, it can be tough, but you learn so much you wouldn't be able to learn anywhere else: how to work with people, time management, all just really valuable lessons.

Fern Creek High School is the most decorated drill team in the United States. The team has brought home multiple national titles for 16 of the last 17 years.
